  • My Toxic Traits
    Dating profiles; are nonsense- they’re meant to be quick, catchy, show a slice of your personality and if you’re lucky you come off a slither interesting. But it got me thinking ( typically ) what if we wrote about the not so attractive parts of ourselves? What if we skipped […]
  • Red
    Red. Fiery. Bubbling hot, Sometimes when the feeling gets too overwhelming,I imagine myself tapping into it,Just under the surface of my skin,Rage soIt pains my chest,Trickling into everything I touch,Damaged.

  • Book Review: Talking To Strangers
    I know I am late to the Malcom Gladwell fan club, but I am here anyways, might have taken me a while 😅. Needless to say, after picking up this book- I couldn’t put it down! To say it was eye opening and in some ways provided many many aha […]

  • Sour
    It still makes me sad that you never wanted me as much as I did you, I did all of the right things, brought you into my fold, So openly and with deep affection, Why wasn’t I good enough? Knowing what I have to offer, what about me didn’t suit? […]
  • Book Review: Yellow Wife
    Instagram really got me good on this one, after constantly seeing this book on my feed at the back end of 2021, beginning of 2022 I thought why not give it a try. Must be gathering traction for a good reason, and if I’m being honest in some ways it […]
